Editorial Reviews

A concise and energetic biography of Abraham Lincoln, this audiobook will leave listeners wanting to discover more about the great man. Narrator Trevor Nichols provides a down-to-earth performance that echoes the straightforward frankness that made "Honest Abe" Lincoln famous. Not merely a personal history, this biography also includes information on the shameful history of slavery and the Civil War - the greatest crisis to ever face the United States at the time. Nichols slows the pace to reflect on Lincoln's legacy as one of the greatest American presidents.
